Tom Hyperspace

To learn about my novel, The Architects of Hyperspace, which legendary science-fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke called "a splendid book," visit

I'm an astrophysicist interested in ingenious problem solving, and I'm especially fascinated by how people survive disasters.  I've taken fire department training (PERT, Pasadena Emergency Response Team), studied first aid with the Red Cross, and have become a licensed ham radio operator (KI6HSO) in order to participate in emergency communication training.

I've also taken courses from one of California's leading survival experts, Christopher Nyerges.  To see some of my notes from his training, visit these pages: FIRE STARTING
